Quick Fix Facials Exfoliating Scrub Mask

 

 

OMG!!! I wish I had got my hand on this mask long before. If you have oily skin, want to even your skin tone, banish black and white heads then you should definitely include this in your skin care arsenal!

 

This mask contain Glycolic Acid which is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid. The effects of this AHA on skin can be remarkable and if used smartly it can be a miracle worker. It also have Pink Rose Clay to help to deep cleanse and decongest the skin. Glycolic Acid is extremely effective at balancing out uneven skin tone. There is Pomegranate extract in it as well which is an incredible antioxidant and has got anti-aging properties to encourage radiant skin.

I use it 2-3 times per week.

Secret to Flawless Skin!

Standard

 

 

I have done a ton of research on anti-aging products and what I’ve found is that dermatologists agree on one thing: The only anti-ager on the market that has proven again and again to reduce fine lines and wrinkles is tretinoin, a derivative of Vitamin A which is commonly known as Retin-A.

Retin-A is a derivative used for anti-aging. While Retin-A remains a medication to treat acne, lots of new products were created specifically to fight wrinkles. The change in the pH level of the skin caused by just a few uses of a Vitamin A product such as Retin-A can help generate collagen. Collagen is the key to healthy skin that tends to age well. For those having acne and want to try it do not panic during the first few weeks of using tretinoin, your acne might appear worse because the medication is working on pimples forming inside the skin. It may take up to 8-12 weeks to notice results from this medication. So just be patient! 🙂

Vitamin A really cuts down on the wrinkles, perhaps better than any other type of skin product. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t expose skin to the sun when using Retin-A. You should avoid tretinoin products if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant because it could cause birth defects. Also, start slowly with this product, which initially can cause redness, peeling and flaking. Too many women give up after just a couple weeks because they are alarmed by the initial effects of tretinoin. Start by using it twice a week, then slowly move to every other day until your skin adjusts.

Skin can become irritated while on Retin-A, if you find your skin has become dry and reddened, stop your skincare regimen and slather on extra virgin olive oil at night before you go to bed. This medication is available in different strengths and forms (e.g., gel, cream, solution). The best type of medication for you to use will depend on the condition of your skin. If you have any doubt talk to your dermatologist. And most importantly use a sunscreen daily, and wear protective clothing when outdoors. Wait until your skin has completely recovered from a sunburn before using tretinoin.

Hope this post helps ladies! 🙂

L’Oreal – Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum Review

Standard

L'Oreal - Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum

This isn’t a laser treatment but it will give you intense action and target wrinkles, skin firmness and skin texture leaving your skin feeling smoother, plumper and looking more even. Advanced anti-ageing care for visible results in 4 weeks.

Revitalift Laser Renew contains a naturally-derived glycan (or complex sugar)-Pro-Xylane, which has been proven in a 6 month study to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet wrinkles, boost skin density and improve bounce. This wonder molecule has been combined with two other powerhouse active ingredients, LHA (Lipohydroxy acid) a smart exfoliating ingredient and fragmented Hyaluronic acid, a moisturising ingredient to boost the effects of the formula.

The luxurious texture has been proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and roughness in a test with a CO2 fractional laser session. The results are convincing-the test revealed that Revitalift Laser Renew resulted in an 18% improvement in roughness and the CO2 fractional laser session resulted in a 20% improvement. There was a 14% reduction in the appearance of wrinkle depth with Laser Renew and a 17% decrease with the CO2 fractional laser session.

 

Triple Action Anti-Ageing Skincare

1. REPLUMPS WRINKLES: enriched with Hyaluronic acid, an effective moisture magnet found naturally in skin, for a stimulating effect. The appearance of wrinkles is reduced.

2. REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF PORES: enriched with LHA. Pores appear tightened.

3. TRANSFORMS THE APPEARANCE OF SKIN TEXTURE: enriched with Pro-Xylane™ 3% and Pro Ceramide. Skin feels smoother and appears more even.

 

Visible Results

– Immediately skin quality is transformed. Skin feels significantly smoother and looks more even.

– Day after day wrinkles appear reduced, pores appear tightened and skin feels firmer.

How to Use

– Apply the Serum every morning and/or evening to a thoroughly cleansed face, either alone or before your Laser Renew Advanced Anti-Ageing Moisturiser.

– Apply a few drops to your fingertips and massage on to your face.

This serum absorbs quickly and it doesn’t leave any greasy film on your skin. It’s a light, pearly white fluid that melts on your skin easily. Besides, you don’t need a lot of product to cover all your face and neck. My skin looks toned, luminous and even lighter. The skin tone seems to be more uniform. My skin keeps well hydrated, smooth and makes it feel elastic and plum for hours. The cream texture is same as the Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator. Those who have dry skin will definitely love this serum!
